Summary: USU 1360 INTEGRATED PHYSICAL SCIENCE

So, are we on track for Integrated Physical Science Credit? Some things (in purple) are not a great
match. Other things are perfect! I have included in square brackets what we are doing to address
those issues.

Content:
The course will focus on the basic unifying concepts of the physical sciences. Among the topics to be
covered will the structure of matter (from the atom to the earth to the universe, stressing the relevant
associated length and time scales), the equivalence of mass and energy and their conservation in all
known processes, and the magnitude and character of forces of nature. The course will emphasize how
modeling, prediction, and observation lead to credible evidence, the contingent character of scientific
knowledge, the use of mathematics and technology for describing the physical world [ILM on
modeling], how that technology and its discoveries impact our daily lives [google, html], and that
scientific discovery occurs within an ethical, historical and social context.

CRITERIA FOR APPROVED BREADTH COURSES: PHYSICAL SCIENCES
The course should improve student's understanding of science as a process and promote their
ability to apply scientific methods of investigation. [Scientific method, algorithms, programming]
The course should provide a fundamental understanding of the unifying principles of physical
